Here at the LSU AgCenter, we've been hard at work creating a new mobile-friendly web experience for our new website. We hope you'll not only enjoy the new look, but you'll find getting the research-based information you need has never been easier. At work, on the go, in the field, at home or in the classroom, we are here to help. Just take a look at some of our new features. Research-driven and Viewer Friendly The new design is based on years of web-based user statistics. Popular items are emphasized so that you can quickly find what you need. Other topics and services are still easily accessible by using the menu bar or the search feature. Mobile First Recognizing that more users will be using mobile technologies to access the Web, the new design is automatically responsive to accommodate a multitude of devices. The layout of the site seamlessly switches from desktop to mobile modes. Mobile users get a refined look and feel that mimics native apps. Clean Vertical Design Keeping with modern trends in web design, the new LSUAgCenter.com uses a vertical page layout. Instead of cluttering the screen with too many options and links. There are now large selection choices that are touch friendly. Scrolling down the page provides access to the full breadth of available choices. This concept makes navigation on smaller mobile devices, such as phones and small tablets, intuitive and elegant.
